AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Brendon James Life Foundation is Australia’s premier cryonic company, with its patient-storage facility situated in outback NSW. To boost sales, and increase its public awareness, it announces a nationwide competition, with the winner to receive a free cryonic suspension. A controversial condition of entry stipulates that all applicants have a terminal illness, with only a further six months’ life expectancy. Geoffrey Blakely, a retired Newcastle Council worker, is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His family is aghast at his decision to enter the competition, desirous of a traditional family funeral. A determined father and husband soon realises that winning the competition is only half the battle in his quest for frozen immortality.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)
